Crested Goshawk? Singapore, Dec 2017

Is this a Crested Goshawk? We have the migrants in Singapore now. The closest could be the Jerdon's Baza but it doesn't look it.

Help appreciated.

Mugimaki Flycatcher? Dec 2017, Singapore

Could this be a Mugimaki Flycatcher? This is the only shot of the bird. I thought I saw an orange-y chest when it turned around briefly before flying off. Does the lack of an eye ring means this is a...

Hi, Bryon.
Just for my education, when you say all egrets show odd plumes, may I know on which parts are the plumes expected? Are those streaks on the chest of the bird in my photo 1 plumes?

Waders, Nov 2017, Singapore

Shot these flying waders from a long ways off. These are 100% crop of the photos. I'm hoping there are still enough details to identify some of the birds.

Thanks Andy & Mark! I did think that it could be some kind of a Barbet but since I do not have a good grasp of the size of the bird and the image is so poor, I'll leave it as unidentified.
